St Pauls

This is a really tricky shot to capture in the daytime due to the volume of the people around. The bridge was also vibrating so was concerned about the length of the exposure.

Really good shot, but it's a pity we can not see it in a larger format... Very beautiful

@Bruno F: Thanks Bruno, I think you maybe onto something there, may print it out large and see what its like.

I love this! The moving people make this image something new, edgy and exciting! I agree with Bruno- this would make a wonderful large print for the wall!

I zoomed it up full screen and all of the main elements look sharp enough Adrian. I love the effect of the moving people.

i love the symmetry and the tonal range here, plus the blur caused by the pedestrians adds a sinister element ...
